SquareMeal Review of Busaba Eathai Kingston

Ten years, ten branches. Busaba Eathai has picked up the pace of late, but standards remain high & its regulars loyal. This chain of Thai eateries, conceived by Alan Yau, gets away with things a less sexy outfit could not: hour-long waits for a berth, no starters, no desserts, communal tables. What’s its secret (aside from the Thai calamari which has most readers in rapture)? In short, it’s ‘quick, affordable, informal & open all day’. Chic interiors, low lighting & that all-important ‘buzz’ don’t do it any harm either. There’s a feeling that portions are shrinking, but the menu of stir-fries, curries, noodles & salads still pleases most visitors. The appeal of certain dishes never diminishes – think stargazer monkfish curry, stir-fried morning glory, & pad thai with prawns, not forgetting those delectable calamari.

I recently went to the Kingston Upon Thames branch of Busaba Eathai. I have been to the Wardour Street branch many times and have always found the food to be good. The Kingston branch however, is terrible. My brother ordered the chilli beef fried rice and it was almost inedible - the egg on it was very greasy and too much fish sauce had been used. I ordered the Pad Kwetio and it also was very greasy. It had very little flavour to it and didn't even taste Thai - more like Chinese noodles from a very bad take away shop. On top of it the prices have increased and each dish was more than £9. The portion sizes were also tiny - much smaller than at the Wardour Street branch. However, in this case it didn't matter as we barely touched the food. A complete waste of money! Finally the staff were very rude - it took ages for anyone to come and take our order despite me trying to get their attention. When someone did eventually come over, they were completely disinterested. Even when we paid the bill, the staff member who served us couldn't even be bothered to look at us or speak to us. The staff made it quite clear that they didn't want to be there and that they had no time at all for the customers. I have eaten in many restaurants and I have to say that this is the worst dining experience I have ever had. The food, the portion sizes, the price and the service were all terrible.
